Combined with the latest systems, refined comfort, and modern amenities, the entire Legacy lineup has features you would expect in a capable Downeast yacht.

Classic Downeast Style

Looking at the classic and elegant lines of the Legacy 36, you will immediately recognize her strong Downeast influence and Maine workboat heritage. The deck is thoughtfully trimmed with epoxy coated Sapelle, a beautiful African hardwood, all expertly finished with high gloss two part urethane clear coat for an easy to maintain yacht finish. The interior of the Legacy 32 showcases Tartan’s renowned joinerwork. The solid stock varnished Sapelle sole and handcrafted cherry trim all provide a level of warmth, comfort, and opulence not found in typical production yachts.

Helm Console

The helm console is a beautifully crafted unit with ample space for all of the electronic essentials. Finished in varnished cherry and surrounding a tilting Suazo wheel, the helm on the Legacy 36 is fine example of Tartan’s renowned joiner work. The helmsman and navigator are pampered with secure and comfortable pedestal chairs, while the mate gets equal attention with a very functional nav table with a pull out laptop or tablet drawer.


The below deck accommodations offer either a private cabin forward or open arrangement plan with a queen size island berth with ample storage in drawers and lockers. The head to starboard includes a full stall shower and is finished in easy to maintain laminates, gel coat and solid surface countertops. To port, it’s your choice; galley down with full cooking facilities, freezer and refrigeration and beautifully finished sold surface countertops, or the galley up layout offers a choice of a below deck settee that converts to a berth or a private guest cabin.

The Legacy 36 galley has the look and feel of a custom kitchen with stainless steel appliances and solid countertops. Featuring a stove-top, microwave, built-in coffee maker, refrigerator drawer and freezer.


An inspection of the L36 engine layout, drive line and shipboard systems reveals a well thought out plan with particular attention given to ease of access, functionality and serviceability. The standard Cummins QSB 6.7 480 HP, electronically controlled engine is a marvel of modern diesel technology. Clean running and efficient the installation features an oversized prop shaft coupled to a precise 5-axis machined, 4 blade propeller for maximum performance. Take comfort in knowing that the driveline is well protected by a keel/skeg that includes a cast bronze shoe between the end of the skeg and the rudder tip. The engine room is also the hub for all electrical and plumbing systems. Top of the line components, all tinned copper wiring with heat shrink terminal connections and low maintenance semi-rigid plumbing highlight the attention given to providing years of convenience and trouble free on board systems.

Hull Design

The Legacy 36 hull is finely sculpted above the waterline, featuring a traditional sheer line, distinctive aft raked transom, functional bow flare forward and graceful tumble home aft. The underwater configuration includes a running keel/skeg combination that offers great protection for the prop and skeg hung rudder. It also provides superior tracking in adverse sea conditions. By pairing wide chine flats and centerline flats, the 36 planes at low speeds, boosting efficiency at comfortable running speeds. Forward, the V’d entry allows the 36 to handle the toughest conditions, while maintaining a dry and stable ride.
